Command Line Options

UPPAAL can be executed from the command line using the following command on unix:

uppaal [OPTION] ... [FILENAME]

On windows, the following command can be used (for instance, using "Run" from the Start Menu):

java -jar \path\uppaal.jar [OPTION] ... [FILENAME]

where path is the complete path to the uppaal.jar file (it might also be necessary to specify the complete path to the java executable).

The optional filename refers to a model to be loaded at startup.

The available command line options are:

--antialias on|off

--serverHost <name>
